The Results Are In: Teachers Love Chat GPT

Artificial intelligence will eventually transform every industry. Education is no exception. In fact, a majority of K-12 teachers say they already use AI chatbot ChatGPT as part of their work, and most of them find it beneficial for student learning.

That’s according to a new report from Impact Research released Tuesday by the Walton Family Foundation. The researchers conducted surveys with 1,000 teachers, 1,002 students, 802 voters and 906 parents nationwide. 

Here are some highlights:

  • 63% of K-12 teachers use ChatGPT for lesson planning, generating instructional material etc.
  • A smaller percentage of students — 42% — use the technology 
  • 84% of teachers who use ChatGPT say it positively impacts their students
  • Among all educators, 58% view the technology favorably 
  • 64% of parents think teachers should be allowed to use ChatGPT in the classroom, with 28% saying it should be actively encouraged 
  • Teachers’ concerns about the use of ChatGPT for cheating purposes are declining 

Clearly, the professionals see AI as more of an asset than a threat. But are chatbots getting dumber as time goes on? New research from Stanford says yes. So use it with caution.
